What is a summer wedding dress?
This wedding dress is designed to be classy but also comfortable when you wear it in the hot summer weather. To find the perfect wedding dress for summer, there are a few points you’ll want to keep in mind:
1. Choice of Fabric
The most important factor to consider when choosing a summer wedding gown is fabric.
Ideally, you should go for lightweight and breathable fabrics that allow maximum flow of air. This way, you’ll stay cool and comfortable regardless of how hot it gets.
Yes, long wedding dresses are the norm. But, there’s nothing wrong with going short, moreso in summer.
Cute and short summer wedding dresses not only provide better breathability but also mobility. Whether you’re getting out of a car, walking down the aisle or dancing, the increased range of movement really comes in handy.
3. Fitted vs Flared
Another decision you’ll have to make is choosing between a flared and fitted wedding dress. Fitted gowns are great for brides who want to show off their hourglass shapes or curves.
But for summer, I’d recommend the flared version as it provides more breathing room. If you don’t want to compromise entirely, consider a wedding dress with a fitting top and flaring A-line skirt.
What should I wear for a second marriage?
You can wear pretty much anything you want. This is just as special as your first wedding. So feel free to pick any gown that makes you feel beautiful and elegant.
What does a bride wear to a casual wedding?
Do you want to have a more laid-back wedding ceremony? If you do, you’re probably wondering what sort of outfit to wear.
The truth is, you can pick anything as long as you feel comfortable wearing it. For instance, some brides prefer to wear bridal jumpsuits. Others, take a more unconventional route, by wearing floral wedding dresses or gowns in different colors.
